part, you are seeing some names pulling back. retail stocks: drug stocks and bank stocks. caterpillar, which is a name adding ten positive dow points. they talked about recent economic times being taught. however, during the back half of 2013 should look better for caterpillar. that is why you are seeing it within up arrow. it adds about ten positive dow points. we have pending home sales that are similar. furniture, paint, everything. home depot. back to you. lori: thank you, nicole. we will talk more about that later. all kind of excitement surrounding the stock market after all the major indexes begin the weekend at and all your heart. let's ask the president of heritage capital. >> good afternoon. i think that 2013 is going to be a frontloaded year. we will see the biggest gains coming earlier in the year. i am much more cautious, for the first time in a while, frankly. we will not continue up every single day. for a while, the trend should be higher. postdocs are certainly buying opportunities. we will set a high point on the dow and the s&p. i think if we start tacking onto the
on, didn't yell at me. @roymessaros, ph.d. am i diversified? apple, caterpillar, celgene, gilead, yum? let's go to work here. we have a high-quality problem. here we go. caterpillar, industrial machinery company. apple, terrific company. there i said it @jimcramer twitter. why would i want it to go down? my charitable trust owns it. yum, restaurant company. and here is the problem. you've got two of the greatest companies in the world. celgene and gilead. i am going to swap out cgln and keep gilead. and you know what we're going to swap? we're going to put in nike. nike. i'm not worried about -- i was worried about chinese overlap for a second. you know, i am worried. that's a mistake. let's put in ross stores. get a retailer in there. a little just kind of mix it up. a little. i have ross stores, stephanie and i think it's going to go up. >> caller: jim, a big gratitude booyah. >> i'm liking that. you're welcome booyah back at you. >> caller: thank you. i started listening to you about a year and a half ago while i was on unemployment, and anyway, here is my top five from my roth ira
of my hope /no hope thesis and it'll be from caterpillar. because after the bell caterpillar announced a big misconduct problem in china that will cause a huge impairment charge. if you see this stock doesn't come down, well, it's kind of like boeing with the lithium batteries that doesn't go down. then we know perhaps i, a bull, am perhaps too bearish. there's always a bull market somewhere, i promise to try to find it for you right here on "mad money." i'm jim cramer, and i will see you tuesday! >>> good evening, everyone, i'm larry kudlow. let me begin tonight with a simple economic message to my republican friends. if you don't communicate and implement a program of deep spending cuts. . including across the board spending sequester, you risk losing control of the house in the 2014 election. why? well, i know the democrats won't cut spending either, but i also know the conservative base of the republican party will stay home or walk away. and, frankly, coming out of your retreat in williamsburg, virginia, i didn't hear the key message of deep spending cuts, not the message that dee
. and it was mind boggling. with that in mind, you have to do it. here is the game plan. we hear from caterpillar. we got dealer numberes from this company. they were not good at all. they were distinctly not so hot, reminding me why. we know they had a gigantic acquisition in china. we know estimates are way too high. we even got an upgrade this week that said that. so in this market, that will be how much should we buy? i'm not kidding, how much should we buy on weakness? that is if we get weakness below where caterpillar is already trading. this market loves you. and all great bull markets have that. they all say, well, look, that was bad, but we see a glass half full here. so please pay close attention to cat. we're going to gauge the progress as she brings out value, unloads pieces because it was so poorly managed. the other night on jim cramer at twitter, someone asked why they didn't buy yahoo!. that would be a great idea. you have one darn cheap stock and a chief executive who knows how to take on google which apple has to do because she's from google. tuesday, we get the results from emc
dividend. it's not done. finally there's caterpillar, today's high-profile earnings name. i want to play it right up front here. when i saw c.a.t.'s numbers, i blanched. they were weaker than i looked for and the outlook wasn't as bullish as i hoped. nobody cared. they're cutting inventories, things will get better later in the year, stock leaped a couple of bucks. when you get a situation where a company reports a not great number and doesn't get hammered but instead goes higher, you can say, oh, that's ridiculous. however, consider when honeywell reported on friday, the u.s. is starting to grow in low single digits. europe's stabilizing and china is growing at 10%. how can we not simply dismiss c.a.t.'s guidance as conservative and buy the stock? and that's what people do. here's the bottom line, you can read through the positive headlines about retail investors coming back, you can play the knee-jerk contrarian game. oh, so they're back, it must be bad. or you can look at the bigger picture, an evolution of an important republican to stop the economic uncertainty. the possibility of i

for corporate giants. caterpillar, dow chemical and chevron are just a few of them. clayco also oversaw the building of the new busch stadium in st. louis. right now, clayco has a thousand employees - nearly 300 in chicago - a number there that's about to double. in a joint statement, clayco's ceo said "we see chicago as an integeral part of our expansion strategy as we add talent and build clayco into the nation's leading full-service real estate development, architecture, engineering and construction firm." but privatization does have its critics. "how does a citizen hold a private firm accountable for a good that they once received from a government entity?" however, employment search firms were ecstatic. rosemary haefner, human resources vice president at career builder, said, "clayco could have a ripple effect far beyond construction. we see improvement in the sales sector and other ancillary jobs go hand-in-hand with this." manpower called the move "very positive. it reinforces our forecast for an improvement in construction, followed by manufacturing." illinois' state board of el
